EYP Switzerland organises a National Selection Conference (NSC) once per year. While the Regional Sessions only last two days and provide a first insight into the world of EYP, the NSCs are full-grown conferences and last five full days. Besides Swiss delegations, also several foreign delegations are invited to participate. Furthermore, the officials’ teams – president and vice-presidents, chairpersons, journalists and jury – are selected from applicants from all over Europe. At the NSC, Swiss delegates can be selected for international EYP events such as International Forums or International Sessions. They then have the right to participate in such events all over Europe together with other Swiss and European students.
